are angry in cairo and back here in the united states. your thoughts, sir, i know you knew the ambationz dorand had met him. very disturbing news. >> we near a critical period are in the united states and the region. the attacks and the tragic assassination of our ambassador in libya and three of his colleagues, is in large measure caused by the weakness and fecklessness of the obama administration's policies. al qaeda, the muslim brotherhood, in libya and egypt have seen weakness and acted on it. and the administration has done nothing today to correct the impression that the weak innocence our policy remains. i really think the analogy to tehran in 1979, before our embassy was taken hostage by the ayatollahs is right on the mark here. we are at a very, very dangerous point. and the president is not demonstrating appropriate american strength. >> greta: you know, there is so much attention, ambassador on what happened in libya, with the murder of our ambassador and three others and the attention, at the live pictures what have is going on at 4:00 a.m. in cairo. there have been protests
. what he really means to say is the united states is going to cut and run in afghanistan by 2014, whether you like it or not, and if the war continues, which it will, it will be without us. same thing's happened in iraq. he said the war was ended in iraq. no, it wasn't. it was not certainly ended for iraqis. people are getting killed every week, but the americans pulled out. if we end up with an israeli strike on iran, there's going to be a total mess in the persian gulf. >> bill: in talking about the u.n., he said the u.s. will do what we must to prevent iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon. i'm not sure what he means by "what we must do." i don't expect him to set it out in detail, but he said. >> look, since he refuses to meet with netanyahu, it's a little hard to figure out what he thinks what we must do is. my first meeting as speaker, before i was even sworn in, was in december of 1994 with the prime minister of israel. he was worried about iran. he said i'm not worried about the israelis. we'll manage that. he said we can't cope withan. that's 1984. the foundation have bee
, disappear from his country. that's why this is a strategic moment for the united states, from -- across the broader middle-east. if we don't stand up here for our enters and our values, we'll see our interest and our values trashed all over the place. let's just take egypt and libya for a minute. the governments of those countries failed in their fundamental responsible to protect our diplomats and our embassy. yet, there is no word from the president on that failure t. leads to the issue whether elements of the libyan and egyptian governments were not compliceit in these actions. >> as we watch and continue to watch the pictures, you can't take your eyes off them. the very sad news, ambassador stevens, he did serve as a u.s. envoy to the libyan opposition in the revolution. only four months ago, he was appointed ambassador to libya. >> my name is chris stevens. i'm the new u.s. ambassador to libya. right now,im in washington, preparing for my assignment. as i walk around the monuments and memorials memorializing the courageous men and women who made america what it is, i am reminded th
the contact, because he knows it's not popular domestically in the united states. however good it is for his image internationally. so he did the absolute minimum and then he got out of town. >> greta: after the prime minister netanyahu gives his speech and goes back to israel, map out what you think will happen in the next couple weeks, if anything. >> well, i don't know. i don't necessarily think there's going to be anything spectacular before our election. i think israel understands that the only thing between iran and nuclear weapons as long as obama is president is the possibility of an israeli military strike. i think israel's decision one way or another on what to do will be based on physics and not politics. they will look at the iranian program and wait as long as they can, but they won't wait beyond that point. i think that has nothing to do with our electoral calendar. >> greta: and the variable here, of course, is the intelligence. how much time is there and, you know, we simply don't know. >> no. i think israel -- >> greta: it's been bad before, at least from my perspective, i d
